Ten items relating to the English physician and anthropologist John Beddoe were discovered between the pages of his autobiography, Memories of Eighty Years (1910). Seven, including two manuscript letters to F. W. Cook, were removed to form this record group. Two obituaries and another letter were firmly attached to the book and remain with it; copies were made for convenience.
